There is no free lunch. That seat in school is paid in large part thru state funding. BUT what to do with children whose home is the US. I could see public service first or military service as a way to be fair to everyone else who DID follow the law. Then give permanent residency with the normal chance to become a citizen. That way college would be in-state price AND job prospects would be real after college.

Legal status for illegal immigrants is a thorny issue with real people's lives in the balance. I want to see not only changes to address the current 12 million here, but also a way to handle the NEXT 12 million. Keep your nose clean, pay back taxes, while doing public service OR go thru regular admitting process. If the end result is: Come, register, fingerprint and do public service, then get legal status to stay permanently folks could NOT be blackmailed by threat of deportation. There has to be plenty of city and state jobs that have been cut by a budget. How about asking those who come to donate their time as a parallel path to admittance. Deport those who are not registered as working the parallel path. I welcome thoughts at davehoug@comcast.net
